Hollande Offers «un droit d'asile» For Art

The video of that section of the speech is here:
VIDEO - Hollande instaure un droit d'asile pour l'art

And the AFP coverage here:
Hollande va instaurer "un droit d'asile" pour les oeuvres d'art menacees par le groupe EI

Am pretty sure France 2 has lots of footage of me way back drawing parallels between destruction of Nineveh Museum and that attacks on Charlie Hebdo, where I pointed out that they were both attack on culture the West held in esteem.

This would be a huge step forward, as at the moment UNESCO refuses in any way to assist with "removing cultural property from its country of origin" so we've been having to use Free Ports - a real country, with real museums is far better.
